Which image are YOU?

I´ve bought some wonderful rubber stamps by Red Lead recently, and when I saw them announcing a swap themed "Which Red Lead image are YOU?" I felt a certain itching in my fingers ... of course I´m a bird! I have combined three different stamps with a photo of myself as a child. Usually I don´t participate in swaps that ask for more than six cards, and usually I don´t do duplicates - so what? I just couldn´t come up with nine different ideas, and by changing the colour scheme I avoided to make plain duplicates I hope. I have used different shades of Glimmer Mist for the backgrounds as well as for the bird piece at the front, then coloured each ATC with watercolours. What a pity that the scan doesn´t show the shimmering colours!
